Challenge #137 – Use Those Inks Anyway You Want

Wahooo England won again – ‘It’s Coming Home’ …

We are a stamping challenge so we do need to see rubber/acrylic stamping on your project.

To qualify for the winner’s prize we especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that the stamping follows the format of the theme.


… but you may use digi downloads for enhancement of your projects … please remember that the main focal point must be STAMPING.

The winner of each challenge will receive a very generous stamp prize from our sponsor Ink Art Designs.

Please pop back on Tuesday to see who the winner is for Challenge #136 – ‘Seaside’ and for the top 3 plus the spotlights on Saturday.

Use Those Inks Anyway You Want

Shirley picked the new challenge theme and I think we can all agree that using your inks is an easy peasy challenge, so lets go!!!

Shirley’s card has a stamped and white embossed background with a very subtle colour tone of blues and creams.

She wanted to draw your eye to the stamps which were coloured with different markers.


Catwalk Inspiration Time

Our Fashion Stampettes are the most talented ladies around, each adding their own creativity, style and flare to capture the essence of the themes every month.
They would love it if you popped over to read how they’ve come up with their gorgeous pieces. 

Just use those inks this month in whatever way pleases you and the catwalk looks amazing with makes from all our lovely ladies.  Each one is so completely different …

… because that’s just what the Design Team do.

So let’s take that catwalk stroll to see each of their stunning makes starting with Dot’s fabulous piece.

This month she has chosen to use these fabulous bird stamps with such a luscious background of inkiness.
